Launched on Atlantis’ last space flight, Hard Disk Manager 11 Professional provides one-button simplicity for astronaut’s restore operations!
At 11:29 a.m. EDT on July 8, 2011, Paragon reached a milestone in the company’s brief history as it soared into the heavens on the final flight of America’s Space Shuttle Atlantis.
Selected by NASA’s Prime Bioastronautics contractor, Wyle, Paragon’s backup and disaster recovery software, Hard Disk Manager (HDM) 11 Professional now orbits the Earth on the International Space Station. HDM 11 serves as the primary backup and recovery software for the latest generation Ultrasound system also launched on Atlantis.
The International Space Station’s primary goal is to provide a platform for scientific research. Human subject research is managed by Wyle as part of the Bioastronautics Contract. Certification of the next generation ultrasound required being able to successfully restore the new ultrasound system to its launch configuration. Lockheed Martin, one of the subcontractors operating with Wyle, the prime contractor on the Bioastronautics Contract, needed a recovery solution that could meet its stringent specifications. As is often the case with space-related operations, a customized software solution was needed.
“At Paragon, we provide our clients with superior customer service regardless of where they are, now that extends to outer space,” said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group.
